Abstract:

This state-of-the-art volume provides an interdisciplinary overview of current
topics and research foci in the areas of linguistic diversity and migration-
induced multilingualism and aims to lay the foundations for interdisciplinary
work and the development of a common methodological framework for the
field. Linguistic diversity and migration-induced multilingualism are complex,
mufti-faceted phenomena that need to be studied from different,
complementary perspectives. The volume comprises a total of fourteen
contributions from linguistic, educationist, and urban sociological
perspectives and highlights the areas of language acquisition, contact and
change, multilingual identities, urban spaces, and education. Linguistic
diversity can be framed as a result of current processes of migration and
globalization. As such the topic of the present volume addresses both a
general audience interested in migration and globalization on a more general
level, and a more specialized audience interested in the linguistic
repercussions of these large-scale societal developments.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
                            Sociolinguistics

Written In: English (eng)
